Dir. Fred Riedel, 2017, US, 76mins
Filmed during dozens of recording sessions, Hello Hello Hello is a story of the creative process — Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) collaborating with producer Raül Refree, across a year and 3,842 miles with a little help from their friends. Novelist Jonathan Lethem (Motherless Brooklyn, The Fortress of Solitude) plays writer/lyricist/muse to Ranaldo’s artist/composer wanderings, across soundscapes created alongside friends and musical guest artists including Nels Cline (Wilco), Sharon Van Etten, Alan Licht, @Kid Millions (Oneida), and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth). Theirs is an unusually intimate and personal process in the creation of Ranaldo’s album, Electric Trim (Mute, 2017), a bold, new sound and a lush and striking departure from Ranaldo’s signature work.
Filmed on location at Echo Canyon West, NJ and Estudios Calamar, Barcelona, May 2015-April 2016
